We'll notify you of future scholarships.
To have received one of these scholarships, you must be a current resident of one of the 28 EU countries or 4 EFTA countries. You must also be at least 18 years old and complete the application in full. Please see the Terms and Conditions for the full list of countries and eligibility requirements.
The program takes place 100% online. You can work from wherever you want to, as long as you have a working internet connection.
That can vary on your level of experience. Between instructional content, quizzes, projects, and other course-related activity, we estimate that investing 10 hours/week will enable you to proceed through both programs to successfully finish before your 3-month scholarship ends. However, this is just a guideline. Both programs are self-paced, meaning you can work at whatever pace you'd like, as long as you complete the material and project(s) before your scholarship ends.
Both scholarship programs are scheduled to run from January 12 - April 12, 2017. You can study according to your own schedule as long as you complete the course within 3 months. You have access to the material via your Udacity classroom, or the mobile apps, 24 hours a day and you are welcome to learn whenever suits you best.
The program is 100% free and funded by Google. No matter if you complete all assignments by the end of the scholarship or fail to do so, you will not be charged or asked for your credit card information.
The Beginner Path scholarship was originally designed for a single course, Android Basics: User Interface - EU. This course has two lessons in it: 1A and 1B. On January 26, we added four additional lessons to the program. All of the combined lessons now show-up under EU Scholarship - Android Development for Beginners in your classroom. The scholarship allows you to try both courses out in a supported environment where Udacity mentors and staff are available in Udacity forums and Slack chats to answer your questions.
The lessons in this course are actually the first two courses (a total of six lessons) in the Android Basics Nanodegree program. Your progress and participation in these courses will in part determine if you qualify for one of the 1,250 scholarships for the Nanodegree.
1,250 high-performing students from this course will be awarded an additional scholarship to the Android Basics Nanodegree program. We’ll start the review process to award these scholarships in early April. To excel in the EU Scholarship - Android Development for Beginners course and give yourself the best chance to win the additional Nanodegree Scholarship, we encourage you to:
Complete your course material and quizzes as well and thoroughly as you can. We will evaluate everyone’s progress at the beginning of April so there is no reward to finishing first.
Support your fellow students and be an active member of the community. We have seen time and time again that the most successful students are those that learn in a community. We hope to see continuous engagement from you and your classmates on Slack and the forums over the next three months.
The Programmer Path is a full scholarship to the Associate Android Fast Track by Google for more advanced programmers. The program is designed to teach you exactly what you need to know to successfully pass the Associate Android Developer Certification Exam from Google, a key credential in the industry. It's a great way to prove your Android Development skills and earn a certification directly from Google affirming those skills—a definitive step on the path to a job as an Android Developer.
Google launched the Associate Android Developer Certification in May 2016. You can learn more about the Certification here.
These scholarships do not guarantee you a job. But Udacity students often do get jobs after graduating from programs like this. Check out some student stories here.
The program is 100% free. Each scholarship recipient will receive credit for the scholarship sufficient to cover fees paid for the program.
In order to be fair to all scholarship applicants and recipients we do not extend deadlines. But we will work very hard to create more scholarship opportunities like this one and hope you will be able to take advantage of those.
